Six years ago, Wanderlei Silva was one of the most feared men on the planet. He wasn’t necessarily the best mixed martial artist in the PRIDE Fighting Championships. After all, his forte wasn’t technique. He was the scariest fighter in PRIDE, and his forte was pain . . . Click here for more by Michael DiSanto, UFC.com

Lee Camp asking about Chavez drug test

In the aftermath of the Saturday’s fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Andy Lee, Lee’s trainer Emanuel Steward has expressed he is very concerned about whether the fight was a level playing field for both fighters to compete in. Team Lee has requested confirmation and clarity from Dick Cole, the Texas State Athletic Commissioner on whether Chavez Jr. carried out an anti-doping drug test on Saturday evening and what the results are. Furthermore Steward has a meeting with Senator John McCain, instigator of the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act on July 10 and one of the items on the agenda is enhanced performance drugs being used in professional boxing.

“Andy Lee is like a son to me,” Steward said “I always look after all my fighters’ health and well being. I am very concerned about enhanced performance drugs being used by boxers. This is not tennis or golf; boxing is a physical combat sport where if drugs are used by one fighter then this is a disadvantage against the other fighter and causes serious damage to a fighter’s health. Are we going to wait for someone to be killed in the ring before this matter is taken seriously and dealt with? (more…)

Adamek-Chambers post-fight comments

By Mike Bernier

Tomasz Adamek: “I won this fight. I thought the fight was very close. I was standing there fighting punch to punch but Eddie didn’t want to fight. Eddie is very slick. I won this fight and I’m very happy. I’ll fight again in September. Now is time for rest.”

In reference to Chambers not able to throw his right hand:
“This is boxing. In 2005 I fought with a broken nose for 12 rounds and I won this fight. You have to be ready for anything.” [Won MD against Paul Briggs for the vacant WBC light heavyweight title]

On what’s next:
“This is a question for the promoter. I don’t know who. I did what I did and now it’s time for rest.”

Eddie Chambers:

In reference to the arm injury:
“I don’t want to be sound brash but I’m sure I would have won the fight. It would have been extraordinarily on-sided for a fighter that was for an underdog going in.”

Chambers believed he tore something in his left arm and at the time of these comments the arm hasn’t had it checked out yet. The arm was rested in a bent position while he stood at the podium to answer questions. He admitted to being in pain if he moved it.

On getting a rematch with Adamek:
“I’m a fighter, I’ll fight anybody. You can look at my resume as far as the guys I faced in the past. I don’t care who it is.”

Juan Manuel Marquez Update

An important source has informed Fightnews.com that there is a strong possibility that Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez could take place in Mexico on November 10. The source mentioned the favorable tax situation should Pacquiao agree to fight in Mexico as opposed to the United States, where the first three Pacquiao-Marquez fights took place. In the meantime, Marquez could reappear on July 21 against Filipino Al Sabaupanen at a place to be determined. Morelia or Puebla in Mexico have been mentioned as possible locations. Promoter Fernando Beltran has stated in many interviews that boxing fans would rather see Pacquiao-Marquez IV rather than a Bradley-Pacquiao rematch.

Saturday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (46-2, 28 KOs) captured the vacant IBF North American heavyweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision victory over a one armed “Fast” Eddie Chambers (36-3, 18 KOs) by scores of 116-112 twice and 119-109. The scores did not indicate the closeness of the fight as Adamek’s powerful combinations seemed to be matched by the Chambers right hand only jabs and cleaner overhand rights throughout the later rounds. The victory for Adamek ranked #7 by the IBF, was his second consecutive victory since his failed world title challenge against Vitali Klitschko and once again puts him once again back in the mix for world heavyweight title aspirations.

ARES Promotions kicked off the Summer a few days early in New York state’s capital of Albany on Saturday at the Empire Convention Center, under “The Egg” with Fight “Night IX.” The five bout card was headlined by local middleweight prospect Marcus Williams, and filled on the undercard with more upstate talent. Marcus Williams continued his winning ways by taking a workman-like eight round unanimous decision over journeyman Troy Artis. Williams was looking to continue his winning ways after suffering a hard fought, razor thin unanimous decision loss to fellow ARES stablemate Jose Medina in October of last year. Though as nails Troy Artis was brought in to test Williams. While Artis’ rock solid chin held up, he had trouble mounting his own offense. Though having Williams against the ropes on a couple occasions, and was able to land some effective blows, Williams won comfortably by scores of 78-74, and 77-73 twice. Williams moves to 10-2, 1 KO while Artis slips to 3-4-1, 2 KOs. (more…)

Johnson favored to win Prizefighter

Bettors are backing Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson to win the Prizefighter International Heavyweights show at York Hall in Bethnal Green on Wednesday. Johnson is the current 6-4 favourite for glory in the 25th edition of the eight man, one night tournament. Kingpin is tipped for the top prize ahead of Poland’s Albert Sosnowski, available at 7-2 to land the £32,000 winner’s check. New York brawler Tor Hamer is the 6-1 third favorite for the trophy, with former USBA champion Maurice Harris a 15-1 chance. Brazil’s Marcelo Luis Nascimento and Moroccan-born Noureddine Meddoune can be backed at 17-1, as can. Odds of 24-1 suggest that England’s Tom Dallas has it all to do if he’s to win on the night, while Hatfield’s Tom Little is the least favoured for tournament glory with odds of 29-1.

It was a domination of Singwangcha fighters last Saturday night as they swept every bout by decision and knockout victories. In the main event, Jomar Fajardo-Singwangcha gave Ruther del Castillo a boxing clinic but the fight ended earlier due to huge cut on Del Castillo’s right eyebrow. The fight was halted in the ninth round and the score cards awarded the victory to Fajardo via unanimous decision.

In the supporting main event, Rey Megrino-Singwangcha scored an early knockout courtesy of a liver shot which sent opponent Prell Tupas to the canvass for good in the very first round. In another featured bout, lightweight prospect Al Sabaupan came back from his recent loss against Marvin Quintero in Mexico by stopping Freddie Martinez in the first round. Sabaupan was relentless from the opening belland finally caught Martinez with a perfect hook to the body knocking out his opponent seconds from the end of the round. (more…)

Litzau destroys Terry

By Jesse Kelley at ringside

Jason Litzau (29-3, 22 KO’s) destroyed Ira Terry (24-9, 14 KO’s) late Friday night in the main event at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis. Litzau scored two knockdowns on his way to stopping Terry at 2:43 of the opening round. Litzau looked like a man possessed as he glared at Terry before the bout. And it was obvious early on that Litzau’s goal was to make it an early night’s work. Litzau began the bout throwing hard combinations to the head but Terry stood his ground and fired back which resulted in good early action. Litzau was willing to take a few to get his punches in but quickly began to overwhelm Terry. Two hard rights to the head dropped Terry to the canvas midway through the round. Terry regrouped and went right back to trading with Litzau. Litzau continued to let his punches go while as he seemed to feed off the energy of the rowdy crowd. Near the end of the round, Litzau was landing at will before a final right to the head put Terry down where referee Mark Nelson waived the fight off. Litzau broke down in tears as he jumped on the ropes to salute his hometown crowd following the win. (more…)

Unbeaten WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (46-0-1, 32 KOs) earned a lot of respect with a seventh round TKO over Andy Lee (28-2, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso, Texas. The taller Lee’s jab was a weapon early as he kept Junior at bay. Chavez upped the pressure in round four and hurt Lee with some big shots. Good two-way action in round five with Chavez doing more damage. That scenario continued to be the theme as Chavez pressured Lee and landed the better punches. Referee Laurence Cole finally waved it off as Chavez punished Lee in the seventh. Time was 2:21. At the time of the stoppage, Lee was ahead on all three cards 58-54.

“I could’ve knocked him out in the first round, but I had leg cramps so I waited,” said Chavez afterward. The win clears the path for Chavez to take on Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez in September.

IBF lightweight champion Miguel “Titere” Vazquez (31-3, 13 KOs) scored a lopsided ten round unanimous decision over former world title challenger Daniel “The Prophet” Attah (26-11-1, 9 KOs) in a non-title bout.
